Indiana musicians are united by a sense of pride for not only their art, but the state in which they are from. Although cities like New York and Austin and L.A. often get the majority of music attention, Indiana as a state is doing something special on a micro-level, keeping ears engaged with quality expression. While many of these artists and music minds may not be recognized outside of the Hoosier state, music enthusiasts within Indiana boundaries will speak highly of the music that this state has to offer. Even within the community of Indiana rock 'n' roll, a vast variety of sounds can be heard, from wild and crazy surf-punk to hazy psychedelic rock. Through and through, Indiana's music community as a whole is alive and well, representing the state through their genuine musical expression.
